Consistently Creative | Week 37
“Creativity can be found in moments of inspiration; however, you can train yourself to create consistently.” – Bryce Ward 1/16/2021
Before starting this website, I never considered myself to be creative. I was not interested in drawing or painting. My best pictures growing up were stick figures. However, I have come to realize that I am an artist. Not with a paintbrush or a guitar but with words. Since I started this website in 2019, I have written over a hundred articles on various topics. With every post, I grew to love writing more and more. Initially, I was not too fond of writing. This was in part because I never got to write for myself during my public education. Now I am working on my first book, and every day I am getting closer to that goal.
How To Grow Your Creative Mind
Creativity is not just some spark of inspiration. It is a muscle that you can train. For myself, it started small writing a blog post every week about what projects I was working on. Then I took on a challenge to write every day for 30 days. Now I am writing a post every week in addition to one new short story. Soon I will be putting together a book. When it comes to building your ability to be creative, set a deadline, and share that deadline with the world. This way, you are pushing yourself to publish your work on time and helping you to avoid the idea that your work needs to be perfect before sharing it with the world. For those of you waiting to share your project, news flash, my friend, your work will never be perfect. What counts is that you publish when you say you will post; otherwise, you will never get the feedback you need to improve your project. You will make mistakes, and the only way to overcome them is to face them head-on. So get creating and publish!
